Time Sensitive or Perishable Items are natural materials that decay over time - they include foodstuffs and some flowers.
Some items will decay or rot over a few days whilst in the party's inventory. Meats and fish becomes rank or sour then rotten, whilst certain flowers wilt. The resultant decay causes changes in the properties - usually unhelpful.
Rank and sour items oft have increased curative properties, though sometimes at a cost of unpleasant side effects. Fully rotten items generally lose their healing properties and may poison or cause other debilitations.
However, perishable items do not decay if kept in storage at the inn, and unpicked perishable will not rot or wilt.
Generally the initial degradation takes 2 or 3 days, some less.
Each item rots at its own rate, even when stored together in item storage. However there is no indication of how long an item will take to rot, and no way of picking fresh items over less fresh ones from storage.
